Calc 140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Professor Cai is hands down THE BEST MATH PROFESSOR I HAVE EVER HAD. He really wants you to understand the material and is very reasonable with grading the tests. This is a teacher that WANTS you to succeed not fail you. I STRONGLY encourage people to take Cai for a Calc 1 professor

MATH 140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

If you can't take Calc I with Cai, don't take Calc 1 here. He does a great job of walking you through the topics and making sure you're not just memorizing steps, but actually understanding the reasons behind the procedures. He's a very fair grader - he won't hand you points for free, but he will curve exam scores if warranted.

Math 141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Calculus II is a touch subject if you are not interested in Math. Cai is an amazing guy and makes the class tolerable. If you go to him for help he is extremely easy to talk to and will help you out. He does not want to see his students do poorly. I had him for Calc I and Calc II and although he's not the easiest he is one of my favorite professors

Math 141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A

His class was honestly what made me like Math. I always had horrible teachers in high school and middle school but the way that he taught just made sense. He is obviously extremely knowledgeable and has a very clear way of describing the problems. He is also fair when it comes to grading exams, which is pretty much the best thing you can ask for!!!

MATH 140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Although he has an accent, his lectures are understandable if you pay attention. To receive an A from his class, all you have to do is do the practice problems A LOT from the textbook. It really helps you on the exams and some of the problems are from the textbook.
